You need to replace <repo clone location> with the actual location on your mac.

If u trust me just use my precompiled application.

Hi everyone. I'm new here. I just got two wireless CadMice that i'm using at home and at the office.

My issue is when I'm scrolling in apps like Photoshop, Illustrator and Google Chrome. If I scroll very carefully, it works well. If I scroll just a bit too fast or too much it will scroll fast in that direction until I scroll the other way.

Is this the same issue that you call "free wheel scrolling"?

Hi henke,

you can find in the 3Dconnexion properties in the device tab right under the speed slider a tickbox to disable the "Smart Scrolling".

Tanks, but that doesn't do anything.

I found this manual claiming that there are Advanced settings where I can edit "Wheel scrolling size" from 'Lines' to 'Page'. I think that I would be able to fix this if only I could access the advanced settings for my CadMouse on my mac. But I can't find it anywhere…

This is from the Windows driver - not from the Mac driver. See below:

Thanks. I tried that, but at first it didn't work. Then I restarted my computer and it seems to work fine now. Thanks.

I am still having this issue with the CAD Mouse Pro. All drivers updated. Has there been any progress on this from 3Dconnexion side?

Hi tomastv,

what exactly is the problem on your side?

Scrolling acceleration. When scrolling one click at a time the screen moves one line at a time. When scrolling faster, the screen moves multiple lines at a time. I find the way this is realised very unintuitive and difficult to control. Is it possible to switch this off, leaving the scrolling speed consistent? There is a 'Smart Scrolling' option in the settings but it does not affect this behaviour. Windows settings have more options (attached in a post earlier). Are these controls available on Mac?

Similar issue with the free scrolling. I am trying to use the mouse on a Win7 machine and cannot install the 3dxware software. On every other machine I use running win10, I have disabled the free scrolling, but by default without the software installed, it reverts back to being on.

Is there a way, or would it be possible, to update the FW on the mouse (or the receiver?) to flip the default state to have the free scrolling feature disabled? I don't want it on ever.

In theory the feature is great, however it is far, far too agressive and five clicks on the scroll wheel gives me 100+ scroll events according to an autohotkey script I am trying to write to debounce the scrolling. For this to be a useful feature, it either needs like 3x the input threshold to be activated, or needs to be 1/10 as long in duration on the output.

I had to return the mouse due to this issue and move on to Logitech's products.
